Back to it... 

Well, it has been about forever since I last penned anything on this page. My life has been a bit upside down the last few months. The company I founded almost five years ago ended up shutting its doors in April/May. I had originally left back in December, 2004. Sad. The reasons were many. Management mistakes. Investor issues. You name it, there was some of it at fault.

So, for the past few months I have been throwing myself into figuring out "what's next?" I'm currently doing some product strategy consulting for the high-tech industry here in the Bay Area. The good news is that I seem to be in demand, with multiple companies trying to recruit me into various positions. That's a nice feeling.

The downside is that I haven't done much with Lisp. It's all I can do to rebuild the SBCL RPM for Sourceforge every month.

Hopefully, that will change here over the next week. I bought myself a couple days-worth of attendence at ILC 2005. I'm looking forward to the various sessions. If anybody is attending and wants to meet up, I'll be there on Tuesday and Wednesday. Unfortunately, I had other commitments for today and tomorrow.

I don't know what Stanford's wireless capabilities are, but perhaps I can blog a bit from the conference.
